Russian Artist Reveals Her Mysterious Sketchbook


If you've got an old soul, you'll be enamored by the delightfully old-fashioned work of Moscow-based artist Elena Limkina. Every week, she offers the world a glimpse into her personal sketchbook, and its pages tell vivid stories of nature, architecture, and classical paintings.
